What makes An Elder

What makes an Elder or a Spiritual leader in any religion or lineage? Is it age? Wisdom? Power? Or all of the above? It's my belief that's it's all of the above and then some. Taking on the responsibility of helping another human being find their spiritual path and make decisions that can change a life is a daunting task and not one to be taken lightly.
An Elder should never tell you what you should do, but tell you what you could do. An Elder is there to guide you, empower you and lift your spirits. An Elder is there to not only answer questions but to ask them. An Elder should never make you feel afraid or belittle you.
